I know many of you have been asking who will replace Terry Collins and Roy Smith and I’ve got an answer on one of them. Terry’s position will be filled by De Jon Watson, who comes to us from the Indians. He grew up in LA as a Dodger fan, so he should know what it means to be a Dodger. And he’s worked with the Marlins (including their 1997 World Championship team), as well as the Reds and Indians, helping Cincinnati bring in guys like Adam Dunn and Austin Kearns.
Also, earlier this year someone was asking me what products are used to get uniforms clean. While I hadn’t had much luck in tracking down exact names until now, there was a story in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal that credits a New Jersey-based company named Eisco as one that "sells uniform cleaning products to every MLB team and about 20 percent of the minors." I hope that helps whomever was looking for the info.
That’s all for now.
